ArmsGules, on a pale ermine between eight bezants a fountain between two roses also gules barbed and seeded proper.
CrestA demi-Bengal tiger proper gorged with a collar of bezants attached there to a chain reflexed over the back Or and holding between the forepaws a rose gules barbed and seeded proper.

The bezants area a reference to Mr Lynn’s profession as an investment banker and the fountain is a canting allusion to the family name (Old English hlynn, a torrent and Gaelic linne, a waterfall). When these arms were granted Mr Lynn was a resident of the City of Mountain Brook in Alabama. The red rose is the national flower of the USA as well as of England. The tiger is the mascot of Princeton University, of which Mr Lynn and his two sons are graduates.
